:shock:


They're in order of hardbacks / signed / short storie collections and then paper back. it works in an odd way. The paper backs are in order though but the hardbacks are a bit mixed.

Interesting experiment to sort by colour :lol:

I finished Strata last week so I have now read both books. They were both good, 3/5 if I had to rate them, though I don't normally.

My favourite scene in DSOFM was Issac versus the lower class robots.

Liked Strata a bit more, especially the way he did the ending cross-cutting between Kin's conversation and their flight.

Am now 50 pages into Truckers. :D

That is one of the few books I have not read, somehow it did not appeal to me.

If you have ever had a cat Dug then you'll like it, otherwise it will be largely pointless.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
